Comment 1 Balint Dobai-Pataky 2005-07-20 22:44:04 UTC
terminal window does not have to be maximized, 
it has to have a width >151
Comment 2 XFCE Team gentoo-dev 2005-08-13 22:21:49 UTC
I can't reproduce here
Comment 3 Balint Dobai-Pataky 2005-08-14 23:26:36 UTC
i can reproduce something like it even in gnome-terminal here.
if the line is longer than the critical length (currently testing on a line 137
chars width) cursor in mcedit in gnome-terminal can go till position 130 but
shows 137 as current column at the header of mcedit.
when i try to edit there it enters the char at the end of the line, and cursor
jumps there, and it looks like it should.

i just emerged multi-gnome-terminal, since that's my favorit for years now.
it does the same trick.
so this report should go to somewhere else, not xfce/terminal, but i don't know
where. :-(
something common have to be found in xfce/terminal, gnome-terminal and

 equery g multi-gnome-terminal

i checked both gnome-terminal and xfce/terminal depend on both gettext and glibc,
so this bug probably may be reasigned to one of those?
Comment 5 Balint Dobai-Pataky 2005-08-16 01:28:46 UTC
so i tested it without X on a 80x25 mcedit session, and have the same problem,
so i think this bug should be reasigned to mc/mcedit.

so please xfce team reasign this bug to .

I can't reproduce this problem with mc-4.6.1, please try that version and report back.
